As viewed from the Hoe, a flagstaff was visible but Old Maps 1:2500 1967 shows a flagstaff as a triangulation station near the east end of the island, so I think this station has gone.

Drake's Island The flagstaff used as a triangulation station was behind the trees centre-left of the island, not the flagstaff visible to the right.
